Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone has seen or used a self assessment tool for facilitators of online communities? I’m thinking of something along the lines of Nancy White’s 9 community orientations but developed into some form of competency framework a la the KM self assessment by Geoff Parcel and Chris Collison. But I wonder if this would adequately describe the role of the facilitator – or even whether that’s possible given the variation in purpose, domain and environment between different online communities.

Appreciate your thoughts.

Kind regards, Simon
